Are you interested in becoming a Black Rose Roller? 

BRR is always looking for new faces, weather it be a new skater, transfer skater, referee, non-skating official (NSO), or volunteer. We would love to have you!

New Skaters:

Most recruitment nights occur on the Thursday and Sunday practices immediately following a home game. Check our home schedule for dates. Anyone can come to a recruitment night, as long as you are over 18 years old. No experience is necessary! During these nights we ask that you bring the following:

1. comfy clothes that allow you to move around and that you won’t mind sweating in.
2. mouth guard.
3. a helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, and knee pads (we have a limited amount of gear on hand to borrow, so bring anything you already have available)

There is a skater fee of $6, which includes free skate rental. Contact Only Zuul at recruitmentbrr@gmail.com to find out when the next recruitment night is. She can provide any general information as well.

Transfer Skaters:

Transfer skaters are individuals that have any experience skating with another league, regardless of the rule set, and that are capable of passing the WFTDA minimum skills test. A transfer skater can join the league at any time during the year. Contact head coach Slamorous at brrheadcoach@gmail.com for more details. She can provide you with practice time and dates.

Referees:

Like any other sport, women’s flat track roller derby requires a strong officiating staff to ensure fair and safe game play. Being a referee does require you to be on skates, however no skating experience is necessary to start. Any interested candidates should contact Co-head referees Brian Robinson and Verbal Assault  at blackroseofficials@gmail.com for more information.

Non-Skating Officials:

Non-Skating Officials are part of the officiating staff that are not on skates. They are an important part to the officials as they keep the referees informed about the specifics of the game, such as times, scores, and penalties. Anyone wanting to learn about the sport should consider becoming an NSO; this is a fast track to learning about rules and game play. Additionally anyone wishing to be involved in the league, but does not feel comfortable skating (yet!) should definitely consider joining this important part of the officiating staff. Contact head NSO Stretch at hnsobrr@gmail.com to get more information.

Volunteers:

Not quite sure you fit in any of the above categories, but you still want to be a part of the league somehow? No problem! BRR is always in need of volunteers. Modern roller derby is completely do-it-yourself, which is not always easy, so any help is greatly appreciated. This includes bout production, promotion (BRR Street Team), fundraising, community awareness, etc. If you feel like you can help us in any way possible (and we really mean ANY WAY, we love new ideas) please do not hesitate to contact the league at blackrosepres@gmail.com
